Aliade is a rural community located in Benue State with an estimated population of about 500,000-800,000 inhabitants.
What We Want To Achieve
The Aliade community suffers from two major issues: (1) Access to clean water and (2) waste management. Women and children are forced to walk for hours to get water and when they finally find it, it is unclean and full of bacteria that can cause waterborne diseases. Also, the community lacks a proper waste management system which contributes to a variety illnesses.
Our solution to their water problem is to build boreholes in various parts of the community.
We will create a system where a waste company will come to the community periodically to clear out the trash dumped on the streets.
